    When I am manually creating and publishing articles to web 2.0s for my tier1, I was told to diverse where the links in the articles are pointed to. I would assume this would make it look more natural. For example, I would point some links to my moneysite and also some to some of my competitors sites as well. Isn't this just creating backlinks for my competitors????

    Yes i guess it is, ive never linked to my competitors, more to authoritative resources like wikipedia etc.

    Or create a network within the same niche and link to your other sites?

    Why to your direct competitors?

    You could always link a Wiki which may compete with you for ranking but they dont actually sell a product so they are pretty harmless..

    Just link them to another authority website. If you want to link out to a website with the same niche as yours just search Wikipedia or Yahoo Answers for them. They are bound to have pages covering the same niche as yours.

    Yes, you are helping your competitor with links. If you want other links on the page, I recommend linking to super high authority sites which are close to your niche. It will keep it looking natural and you won't be helping your competitors.

    Haha that's funny. There are tons of other authority links out there but you chose to place your competitior's link in your first tier? Oh god why..
